Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: Do you play music in the background when you read? Any favorite types? #BookTalk

TheSpineView If reading on a plane I like classical music. Any other time I prefer silence. 5mo
QuietlyLaura Classical music or instrumental. Sometimes nothing. 5mo
Esmerelda1rm I like to play thunderstorms on my alexa 5mo

vivastory Scandinavian Death Metal 🎸☠🤘 j/k I almost always read in silence 5mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai Heck yeah! Headphones on and volume up!! 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Hard pass on the music from me 5mo
Kimberlone I usually prefer to read in silence. Otherwise, ambient, chill music (without lyrics) can be a good background 5mo
mdm139 Nothing with lyrics, instrumental only. But I prefer rain sounds or snow storm or nature sounds. 5mo
Crazeedi Not normally, I like the quiet, though if I'm fully immersed, nothing disturbs me 5mo
xicanti As often as I can. Almost always stuff with lyrics, as I own very little instrumental music. 5mo
AsYouWish Yep! Pandora is my best friend while reading. 5mo
Lcsmcat I usually prefer quiet, but if he book mentions music I might cue it up while I read. 5mo
BooknerdsLife I don‘t usually listen to anything while reading, but would be nice if I could listen to another book while reading a different book 😆 #Multitask FTW 5mo
Caffeinated_Reader Sometimes. When I do I listen to Crywolf his voice is so beautiful & the music isn‘t overwhelming if I put it on low. 5mo
jaimeisbionic I don't usually put music on but I don't mind if it's on as long as it's not abrasive or loud. 5mo
JulietteGF The only time I do this is because I can hear the sound of TV in the next room, and it bothers me... So I put a playlist of classical music on YouTube ;) Weirdly enough, I manage to read in noisy public places (as long as the book isn't a philosophical essay). 5mo
BookPixie I don‘t listen to music while reading. I prefer silence. 5mo
Crystalblu Yep! Mostly classical and soundtracks. 5mo
TheEllieMo I use white noise if I‘m trying to read and someone nearby has one of those voices that you can‘t tune out. 5mo
TheDarkTrick @BookPixie Same! I can have background noise, even TV, but it has to be uninteresting enough for me not to care about it. 5mo

I think I can #multitask this book...it has #creepycharacters (Mrs. Poole, anyone?). Jane, my favorite #litsyclassics #heroine takes morally #higherground after learning about Bertha, but turns her #sorrowintotreasuredgold by the end. ❤️

My favorite of all the Jane Austen movie #weddings. ❤️ I'm sure they served #🍷. And even more importantly, Marianne, you were able to #freeyourmind of that cad Willoughby. 😄 #thisremindsmeof #fiercefeb #150PnPCoverParty

RachelO Once upon a time, many years ago, I was a teensy bit unemployed. One Tuesday, I headed off down the job centre to sign on as normal, and there was this queue of people going out the door and right round the block. Which I quietly ignored (as you do), and walked on in. As the guy was processing my paperwork, he said 'You didn't fancy being an extra then?' It was S&S. Me then: 😰😱🏃🏻‍♀️Me now: 😍 🙁#regrets 2y
LeahBergen @RachelO That would‘ve been AMAZING. 😮 2y

Now that things are settling down in my world, I am finding more time for books. And it just so happens that the two I have going are #monsterreads. #it and #aclashofkings. This one is a first read for me, the Martin book a reread.
#audiobooks allow me to #multitask 🤡🎈🎈🎈

"A funny thing happens when more than one knitter gathers in a public place. A solo knitter, presuming she is a woman, quickly fades into the backdrop like a potted palm or a quietly nursing mother. Asingle knitter is shorthand for "nothing to see here, move on.
But when knitters gather, we become incongruously conspicuous. We are a species that other people aren't used to seeing in flocks" - Anyone else knit and listen to audiobooks? #multitask
